    Signs of the fraying of political consensus in Europe are showing up again this morning.

  • plaza reial barcelona spain

    Okay, blame Spain, but it was really Apple's fade that killed our chances for moving aggressively into the black. Am I the only one who thinks the Apple conference is a relative non-event? Apparently not.

  • Spain

    Is it enough? The 100 billion euros ($125 billion) the European Union is lending to Spain for bank recapitalization was dismissed almost immediately because it didn't involve: 1) writedowns; and 2) a massive restructuring of the Spanish economy. This buys some more time, but everyone is looking for what form the ultimate solution will take.

  • Greek Parliament

    My poll is better than your poll: “Poll: Pro-Bailout Vote Leads in Greece.” There is a poll out this morning that says Greece's pro-bailout New Democracy party was ahead in the Greek elections, with 23 percent of the vote versus 22 percent for the anti-bailout Syriza party. There's another poll by a separate organization that says the anti-bailout vote leads in Greece. This poll has New Democracy with 26 percent of the vote, and 30 percent for Syriza. They poll, you decide.

  • Spain

    Hostage to headlines. We can't even get a quiet, boring close going into the Memorial Day weekend.

  • The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Form S-1, filled out by Facebook Inc.

    Analyst reports on Facebook highlight the problem I have always had with the company: There is a vast disagreement over how to value it.


    More fallout from the Facebook debacle: Nasdaq and Direct Edge are introducing fees on high-frequency traders who send large numbers of cancelled trades to their exchanges. The Direct Edge fees begin on June 1.

  • Facebook IPO papers

    Facebook suddenly spikes at the close on a surge in volume, ending above $33. Yesterday (Wednesday) it's up almost exactly $1, today it's up almost exactly $1. Looks like suddenly FB has acquired a friend of the court, doesn't it? Who could that be?

  • Is Facebook Moving to Another Exchange?

    CNBC's Scott Wapner reports the Nasdaq is making an aggressive push to try and stem the Facebook damage on its initial offering and discussing whether underwriter, Morgan Stanley or the Nasdaq is to blame for the trading blunder, with CNBC's Gary Kaminsky and Bob Pisani.
